ON EVERYONES LIPS
Whilst the entire globe goes Beauty And The Beast mad, I decided to do a little fact-finding mission. Before the Harry Potter franchise exploded onto our shelves and screens, Emma Watson, was an unknown entity. Lets meditate and enlighten ourselves shall we?
• Despite being British, she was actually born in Paris, France.
• She auditioned eight times for the role of Hermoine Granger in the Potter films.
• She was 11 years old when the first movie Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was released in 2001. It grossed more than $974 million worldwide.
• Ms Watson could stand to make around $15 million if BATB makes $750 million globally. She has an estimated Net. Worth of over $50 million.
Just a quick update on the cinema situation… Kong and Wolverine have been shunned to the side-lines as the belle of the ball that is Beauty And The Beast takes centre stage.
The tale as old as time, released in grand fashion this weekend, generating astonishing $170 million (and $350 million globally).
THE SOUND OF MUSIC
SHOW ME THE MONEY HONEY!
As summer is fast approaching its time to start booking our concert tour tickets and summer festival packages.
There is nothing I like better than going to see my favourite superstar in their element, a packed stadium, doing what they do best. Rocking out to thousands of adoring fans.
Global tours are a pricey business; for starters the venue hire isn’t cheap, combined with insurance costs and transportation. Lets just say, these megastars aren’t taking the local bus!

The Irish rockers set up a 360° stage with a giant screen suspended above them in a contraption nicknamed “the Claw.” The set up allowed the audience to almost surround the stage and increased the venues’ capacity.
